Ideas are Scary: A Ten Minute Lesson

ideasarescaryIt isn’t often I recommend that classes (or families) watch a commercial, but for this one I’ll make an exception.  Take a look.  General Electric (which is barely mentioned) lives up to its slogan “Imagination at Work.”

What a great way to start a conversation about innovation, risk taking, and the kind of atmosphere we want in our classrooms and our homes. Talk to the young people around you about what it takes to have a space in which ideas are safe and can become something beautiful. Then set about creating that space. I’d love to hear about it!
